February 29, 1952 - January 22, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Susan.
So very blessed to have had Sue in our lives are her sister Colleen Olfert; brother-in-law John; nephew Christian, and cherished family and friends.
Susan was an accomplished academic who loved to travel and explore our world. Throughout Sue's life she had many beloved pets and gave generously of her time, and financial support, to causes close to her heart.
Susan always enjoyed helping others and sought a career that would enable her to make a difference. Sue became one of the first three women to be accepted into a Winnipeg Police Service recruit class and retired as a Sargent of Detectives.
Our heartfelt thanks to all of the medical professionals who cared for her. We are so very grateful to the kind and compassionate staff of the Deer Lodge Hospital, volunteer furry friends and their owners, and visitors who stopped by to brighten her days.
To honour Susan's wishes there will be no formal service. Sue preferred that her life be celebrated as quiet memories in the hearts of those who loved her.
In lieu of flowers, your prayers for Sue's safe journey home would be lovingly appreciated.

Forever Loved

Condolences may be left on her tribute wall at

Gilbart Funeral Home, Selkirk
in care of arrangements.

She had a twisted sense of humour with us . I had no idea she had health issues. Im very sorry her family's loss . She really was a great person. - Posted by: Jeff Seaford (Co worker) on: Jan 27, 2020
